Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"If I were a T-shirt, I'd want the Sistahs of Harlem treatment." -Bust Magazine

"The duo behind Sistahs of Harlem blend catwalk couture with uptown flare." -Time Out New York

Designer Brands in Paris, Milan and Tokyo are copying hip-hop street life today, and the T-Shirt is the urban fashion staple. Now, the first book from the women who redefined and marketed the torn T-Shirt concept and started a fashion craze, shares 20 unexpected and easy-to-follow projects for every gal. Here's a way to be hip, cool, and fiscally responsible--all at the same time.

"T-Shirt Makeovers" not only presents step-by-step instructions to turn the classic T into a fashion statement, but also exhibits it with original illustrations and vibrant photos that will showcase your creations.

From the Back Cover

"Sistahs of Harlem slash, sew and style--with a message. Their designs include political messages, and they aim to empower girls with their motto: To preserve is beautiful." -Seventeen Magazine

Take your old or weary, new and funky or just plain cotton comfy T-shirt and turn it into a fashion statement. "T-Shirt Makeovers" is a guide for every fashionista, a how-to style book for those who want high fashion at an affordable cost. The first book by the celebrated style duo, Sistahs of Harlem, "T-Shirt Makeovers" reveals their fashion secrets in a step-by-step format that will make turning any T-shirt in your closet into a fashion find.

Consider the T-Shirt a blank canvas that can be cut, sewn, twisted, and turned. It can be deconstructed and reconstructed; recycled and resuscitated, refashioned, and reinvented. Its style can be punk-y, funky, chic, unique, retro and even classic. It can become a halter, a tank top, a peasant blouse, a tube top, or even a dress. Demonstrating the versitility of the incredible T, this book shows--with original illustrations and vibrant photos of the end result--how easy it is to turn the old into something new.

The Sistahs continue to receive praise and recognition for their singular vision, from outlets such as Seventeen, YM, Jane, Bust and Ebony magazines. In "T-Shirt Makeovers," this innovative team will help you realize the unlimited possibilities of your own creativity.

I love this book. I've bought quite a few of these tshirt makeover jobs, and been a little let down. But this - this beats them all. There are a bunch of ts I can see myself putting together. And they're different - not like some of the other books out there which give you 50 variations on the same theme. They range from bare to covered up, and each design is graded as to difficulty. There are photos of the Ts being worn by models, and great diagrams of how to do the work. There's even a secion at the beginning where the Sistahs go into body types, colour and so on. Very well done book. Really glad I bought it.

T-Shirt Makeover is a great book for all ages. I purchased 1 book, loved it so much I decided it would be my gift of choice this year. The clear concise directions made it easy and enjoyable for even the "creatively challenged". The styles, ranging from conservative to ultra trendy allows something for everyone. We had a T-shirt Makeover party with guest ranging in age from 10 to 62, not only did we have great fun each guest left with a chic new top. I highly recommend this book.

This has great ideas with complete instructions that are easy to follow. The first project we tried took 45 minutes and turned out exactly as the sample in the book. What a great way to make use of those extra unused T-shirts.

If you don't have this book, you have no idea on what you're missing. The opportunity to be fashionable without even leaving your home. There are so many styles displaying ways to look good in a t-shirt and it's apparent that the styles are for all sizes. Well I have it and Thanks sistahs for wanting everyone woman to be sassy and funky in their old skin.

Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book after Generation T; hoping for something more creative and challenging. I found Generation T a little too simple for my redesigning tastes. However, this turned out to be a little more than I bargained for. Just keep in mind:

THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR ANYONE WHO HAS LITTLE OR NO EXPERIENCE WITH SEWING.

Unlike Generation T, where 1/3 of the designs are No Sew, T Shirt Makeovers requires a substantial amount of experience, and for several designs, a sewing machine.

Also, if you are a person who likes to cover themselves rather to wear anything revealing, or a person is self-conscious of how they body looks (esp. overweight) you will probably find yourself not recreating the designs in the book.

If you are a senior/advanced sewer with a sense of fashion and not epidermis-shy, you will probably find this book a golden edition in your DIY library.

For the newbies, I reccomend Generation T; which is as basic as you can possibly get.

The designs are appealing and sexy, and the Sistahs coach you on fashion secrets, color, and body types. I, myself do not plan to create any of these designs, (with the exception of the first one) but it's been good inspiration for me, and I am satisfied with my purchase.

I love these designers! They have the hottest clothes. I'm just so glad that they came out with this book. So now I can make my own Sistahs of Harlem shirt. I can't wait to get started.

Hi. I'm 34 and somebody's mom. I will not be wearing many of these styles. I do want to do something a little different from the standard T, but Generation T spoke to me a bit more than this one. I do applaud their innovation, though, and I will use some of these ideas as inspiration, but most of the styles are a bit over the top for me. (The first design, I think, is the best one, and there's maybe one other that I will try.)
